The president of Mr. Hong has founded Safeway Machinery Industry Corporation in 1985. At the beginning, the company mainly manufactured Drill Index Head and in 1986 produced its first Lock-down Jaw Mechanical / Hydraulic Machine Vise. These preliminary products were immediately well accepted by customers for their good quality and stable hydraulic pressure characteristics. Company businesses were since moving full steam ahead.
By the time when CNC machining center industry was moving fast in Taiwan, Safeway started designing its first MC Compact Mechanical / Hydraulic Machine Vise specially for CNC machining centers. The brand new product was launched successfully the following year. Local and international customers' reactions were great. From then on, Safeway focuses even more upon more upon self-research and development.
"Innovation and Service Comes First", that is the professional business attitude that Safeway is upholding in their daily operations to provide customers with versatile products and services. Based upon years of the knowledge and experience for manufacturing precision vises and clamping devices, the entire technician team of Safeway has led the way to introduce full range of products suitable for different industries, laying a reliable foundation for precision vise industry in Taiwan and gradually becoming a world class CNC precision vise manufacture.
In order to offer the excellent services for customers, we started to research the "NC Rotary Table" in 2006 and be developed in 2009. At the same time, we showed the "NC Rotary Table " at the TIMTOS SHOW which got a very good sales amount also.In the Taiwanese precision vise industry, Safeway was the FIRST manufacturer who has continuously achieved the Taiwan Excellence Awrds in 1996 and 1997. After these achievements, great sales have been created this is just another proof that customers' trust toward Safeway products are overwhelming then the MV series products achieved the Taiwan Excellence Awards in 2010. Safeway must consistently introduce exceptional products to meet ever-growing market demands then be successful in manufacturing the "NC Rotary Table". It is really the irrevocable responsibility for Safeway as a precision vise and "NC Rotary Table" manufacturer in Taiwan.
